MADISONVILLE, Ky. — Business and Professional Women’s Club recently held a fashion show to raise money for scholarships. BPW President Beth Mitchell said the fashion show was all about raising funds for “women’s” scholarships.

She said they give at least one scholarship a year to a woman in Hopkins County.

Owner of Merle Norman Cosmetics Sharon Smith, co-sponsor for the event, said every year the BPWC gives a scholarship to a traditional student or a non-traditional student, but will be a woman, because the club is a female organization.

Smith said in trying to gather ideas for fundraisers, the club decided to do a fashion show and Merle Norman started carrying clothing last fall in its Madisonville studio so, “tonight, we are seeing all the new spring fashions that we have in the studio.”

She said the fashion show consisted of different age models of different professions, such as a hair dresser, business owners, a dental hygienist, make-up artist, a doctor’s wife, and a lot of really great models.

BPW did all the refreshments and Smith said Hopkins County Schools let them use the building because they are raising money for scholarship funds for Hopkins County.
